will be recognized for one minute. >> mr. speaker, i rise today in strong support of the nuclear energy sector, not only do nuclear power plants provide affordable, reliable and clean energy, they also provide many quality high-paying jobs and are the backbone of many communities. my district is shome to a nuclear plant -- is home to a nuclear plant that employs near 700 people. nuclear energy is a secure energy source that plays a vital role in a responsible, all-of-the-above energy policy. mr. davis: it is the biggest provider of reliable, efficient, clean energy and it provides on-demand energy 24/7. the recent record cold temperatures in the midwest show the importance of energy diversification. many of my constituents saw steep increases in their electric bill. while pipes froze and transportation became difficult because of iced roads and bridges, nuclear power remained consistent. i worry that things could have become worse if nuclear power wasn't able to fill the gaps where needed. this is why i stand here today in support of nuclear energy and all of my constituents and the hardworkin

speaker, we are in a global competition, a global race on clean energy and innovation. in our efforts to witness race and ensure our place as the kingpin of the global economy, for decades to come we must support a secure, all of the above domestic energy supply that includes both newly abundant traditional fossil fuels as well as clean renewable energy. energy such as wind, solar, biomass, hydro, nuclear, and more. we simply cannot continue to rely on a single fossil fuel to power our economy. that is not wise, long-term policy. today i would like to highlight one of these abundant job creating clean energy sources. wind energy, one way to support this critical source of energy for our nation is the federal production tax credit. the credit that keeps electricity rates low and encourages development of proven renewable energy projects. this credit expired at the end of last year, and must be retroactively extended to foster job growth and promote a greener and cleaner environment for the next generation. the p.t.c., production tax credit, also creates jobs. in my district, the capita

of reprocessing in order to, for example, provide domestic energy, nuclear energy plants. many countries in the world have nuclear energy. but only a handful actually process it themselves. most just decide to buy it already processed from abroad. we have agreements and we have arrangements with countries all over the planet that do that. only a handful actually retain the capacity to reprocess it or -- or -- or to enrich uranium or reprocess plutonium. when you see a country -- when you see a country announce that they are going to invest money, time and energy in developing a processing -- a reprocessing or an enrichment exaibilityd, that raises -- capability, that raises red flags and here's why. because while you only need a certain level of enrichment to be able to provide nuclear energy for peaceful purposes and a little bit of a higher level in order to be able to use it for medical isotopes, the exact same machines, the exact same facilities, the exact same scientists are the exact same runs that can also reprocess or enrich to an even higher level to use in a weapon. the story o

ago where i felt, actually, all the energy was in the commercial sector and the dynamism and the independence, of course, was in the commercial sector. but rta does reach across the whole country. it does reach into the rural areas. it does reach outside of the city. it does reach those populations who are not reached by the commercial media. and i think all media is important, but rta is absolutely key to the future of a country. particularly if it can become more independent. what, as we were talking about this morning, is needed in afghanistan is a national dialogue, is a national public debate. and i think one of the foundation stones for the national dialogue to come is something like, is rta. this is a difficult argument to make, actually. i mean, we support public service broadcasting around the world, and the number of success stories, successful transition of state characters to independent, financially-independent public broadcasters is not a big one. the political price of surrendering control of your state broadcaster by any incumbent president is very, very h

to go through europe but there are others, and one other to highlight is the question of energy and power. there are meetings of the forum is here where the regional political business leaders got together and what they got excited about is when they discovered some of the central asia republics have somewhere between two to 6 kilowatts in our dark producing 13 to 16 cents per kilowatt hour an and t the differential is an enormous trade and then there are others that increasingly are being discovered, but in that search for the regional corporation is what would help create the incentives for the peace and stability. let me see if i can add just the question of the peace process and i talked about this a little bit before the session. i would make four points if i could. one, it's important to start this as david said in his intervention to remember that we are fighting these televangelists continue to attack and attack and as david said not long combat since the terrible attacks on the afghan national security forces into the effort to kill and maim american forces and internat
countries around the world have peaceful nuclear energy programs. they are doing this without spinning centrifuges, without enriching uranium, without operating heavywater facilities, and without conducting military nuclear research. onyou know why iran insists doing all of these things that the other peaceful countries do not do? it is because iran does not want a peaceful nuclear program. iran once a military nuclear program. i said it here once, i will say it here again -- if it looks like a duck, if it walks like a duck, if a quack like a duck, what is it? it ain't a chicken. it is certainly not a dove. it is still a nuclear duck.

the united states was sending voluntary contributions to the international atomic energy administration, whose voluntary contributions above membership dues were going to create capacity of the nuclear facility not in the national interest of the united states not in the national interest of the state of israel. for a decade i was told my concerns had no legitimate basis , that iran would never be able to bring the plant online and that iran's nuclear activities were not a major concern. history has shown us those assessments about iran's abilities and intentions were civilly wrong man -- wrong man and i believe they are wrong today. i am skeptical of iran keeping its promises. and what we should expect before we moved to an agreement that we would hope permanently dismantles iran's to clear weapon program. i support a diplomatic row gram to get us to a deal. this must be reinforced by international commitment to international regime -- to sanctions against iran. we must keep the pressure on. we cannot let them opt you skate -- obvious gate -- obfuscate to make sure they never have the

approach that takes the concerns and anxieties of these people into account would promote clean energy even as it acknowledges the real-world biflts of traditional sources of energy. my point is this: the administration has broken faith with the middle class and it's stirred up strong emotions; especially among those of us who want to see a better life for those struggling to make it in our states. almost everyone feels let down. a lot of folks are really angry, and it is a real tragedy, not only because of the missed opportunities and the human cost of these policies but also because the president ran for office and promised a very, very different approach. it's tragic because the very folks he's talked about helping are the ones who seem to suffer the most under his presidency. and its tragic because it appears he answered the question i posed in january that he's prepared to double down on the left and throw in the towel on the middle class. how else can you explain the obsession with all of these peripheral, ideological issues at a time when americans are demanding good, stable, high-pa
